The target of these awards is to recognize the “effort of these men and women that are committed to transmit truth, principles, and to be next to the Venezuelan people in this difficult time, and to not give up on their work as journalists or on communicating in our country, even if the circumstances are difficult”, emphasized Monsignor Basabe.

“Media world – added the prelate- feels a little bit orphan regarding the recognition of their work. This is why CEV decided to bring again the awards that had 12 years without being celebrated.”
